Today I noticed that my wilwood breaks creak a lot. Even if i am stopped and i press the brakes. So i took the calipers off and greased up all of the points that the pad moves on, no dice. Anyone encounter or hear about this? Thanks.

I had the problem that one of the bolt hole threads, in the aluminum bracket was soo worn, that the bolt slowly started loosening itself.. almost to the point of falling out/off (Aluminum plate and steel bolt.. they say even on bicycles that that's a no no.. don't mix materials..)... it became noticeable through a high pitch squeal... i have now installed longer bolts with a nut on the inside (yes there is enough room, just used a thinner nut and a whole gob of threadlock/thread fastener..) so you might want to check the tightness of the bolts... not saying it has to be that,, but it COULD be....

Did you check the caliper shims? Make sure they're lubed up. They need to have *some* play (not pinching the pads) in order to allow the pads movement while gliding along the rotor surface.
Let me know if this makes sense. Just another shot.

mine has been making that noise also. I will check the calipers for any rocks. Maybe I need to lube up the shims ...I will check that tonight... wow I thought I was the only one experiencing that noise even when hitting the brakes at a stop...
